. that statement from president obama is ridiculous. if you look at u.s. oil consumption, it's been declining for a long time now. last year we consumed 18.6 million barrels of oil a day, which i the same amount we consumed in 1996. so u.s. oil consumption is going down. not about the u.s. consuming more oil. western european oil consumption is going down. i you want to know where the growth is coming. , it's emerging marks like champion and india. china consumes two barrels of oil per person per year compared to the u.s. at 22 and at it just going to keep going -- >> it's not how much we're using but access to how much we're getting? the president says he has been more open to opening up land than anyone prior. you say what? >> well, i don't think so. obviously the u.s. energy companies are having some success. u.s. oil production has been rising for three years. u.s. and canada are the only two countries outside opec, showing any growth at all. but there's a lot more we can do. another big problem is the enable to build new pipelines to actually move oil from all these new fields in north d

that are likely not to succeed, so it doesn't make more sense to invest in that they bring in a whole u.s. infrastructure, which we probably cannot sustain which will probably take us months to understand what's going on. it increases our influence. it forces us to be catalytic and captures local talent that makes it much more sustainable. we've all talked about it for years and we still don't produce it. the first response is to send me 10 or 15 internationals. even the best of us in a new job it takes months to figure out which are doing. a new country or new job should be more complicated. common sense would head in this direction. i guess the final point i would raise and this is an important one. and everyone of these cases, help is needed. and i must every case they don't want us to take over. so covert assistance to the kind were offering visits with these places need and want, but we should be much more respectful of the fact it is not ours to own them furthermore in a place we haven't really found it to be a very happy experience. cities are some of the rules we are refining us t

. >> and if governor o'malley has his wayne, gun control laws in maryland will be some of the strictest in the u.s. and he is one step closer to achieving the goal. >> a winter storm is moving across the country and people in the midwest are buried in feet of snow. is that storm headed in our direction? that's one of the big things we want to know. thanks for joining us on this friday morning, and happy friday by the way. i am megan pringle. >> i am charley crowson. tgif. what's the weather going to be like for today? into the weekend i understand you are looking at tonight on the drive home for many people. >> exactly. we are going to deal with black ice. but as we start you out. maryland's most powerful radar, this is the storm back off towards the west dumping snow now around chicago and they could see about 6 inches maybe more across the area. but closer here at home, we can see on the southern extent of this, we are getting reports in roane own of light snow coming into the area. this will begin to continue to move into our direction as we go further into the afternoon and also the evening ti
surprised that they had behavior at 16. it keeps corrections from happening. in addition, the only way the u.s. government can manage the deficit is because the federal reserve's ability to print on it. today the federal reserve couldn't print money. i don't think the u.s. -- he would not be creditworthy if you couldn't print money and that creates a huge temptation for politicians. i'm not the label discipline physical policy until he do with monetary policy. you have very specific areas to lead to the financial crisis. in the late 1990s, alan greenspan is head of the federal reserve, wanted to be a hero in us getting ready to retire and we had a minor correction. so greenspan wants to go on a good note city starts lowering interest rates, the effective printing money and he creates negative real interest rates. you can borrow turn on to criticize in the appreciation rate on housing, which invented a huge investment in housing and then right at the end of his term, greenspan realizes he's screwed up and he and his successors start raising interest rates rapidly and create something called an
will share the results of the end of the show. well, obamacare is helping dig the u.s. deeper into debt. now our monstrous debt, 16 trillion, has people wondering if that is the real reason the u.s. keeps talking tough but won't get tough with china. this is all over the numerous cyber attacks china is accused of waging against u.s. companies and government agencies. a fox news contributor. great to have you back on the show. it seems like the u.s. government wants to talk a tough game. there is absolutely nothing behind it. how can there be something behind it when we hope china so much money? >> talk with nothing behind it is unfortunately typical of the obama administration. the point you're making about the debt is significant. i think it has been a problem for the united states in the wrong way. it comes up when people say whenever we have an issue with china basically they say, well, we can't do anything about that. then we don't do anything about it. you never challenge china you never forced them to use the debt as leverage, so they went for free. the conclusion in beijing is we migh
the last year to really broaden the u.s. knowledge of what's going on in syria, who the key players are. and i think if you end up, if you're getting close to a circumstance where there might be either rationalized or let's call it a highly decentralized result to the conflict, then you really want to know 100 people. you don't want to be dependent on just walking a white horse down main street at damascus and hoping that some leader jumps on and we go. so this is the kind of sort of ground, foundation building that you have to undertake and that we've done. >> could you tell us something a little more specific about how you're actually doing that? do you know 100 people in aleppo? you've got a team of 200. are you able to get people on the ground, work with others? >> sirree is a really good challenge, because you have to work out of a third country, which has its own for distinct feelings about what's going on inside of syria and what it might mean to them. so we're working -- up until the last two weeks, we have worked exclusively in turkey. and then we, now we started to work in jor
to the fact of the 18,000 police departments in the u.s., only a minority, about 300 have the money to spend on aerial assets such as helicopters or light aircraft. those who support drones argue that there are essentially misunderstood. most are very small like the one you see here costs between ten and $50,000. and they can only fly for about an hour or less. they can not be armed. those who support the drones say they are force multipliers for local cops and rescue crews. >> it is an extra tool in the tool kit for the first-responders to use and it is more portable than a lot of manned assets that are out there. >> reporter: those against the explosive expansion of drones say the law has not kept pace with technology which means simply basic privacy right its are at stake here. >>> number one, drones should never be used to look into private areas like your bedroom window or your barn, what have you, without a warrant. number two when you're out in public you are being watched by people around you but you don't expect you're being tracked everywhere you go all day by some unseen eye in th

years. the u.s. will -- stocks are expensive compared to the rest of the world. the suggestion is not to own the u.s., but all a little less of it. you just look at your 401(k) and change allocation in terms of percentage. are you worried about something in particular here in the u.s.? we will talk about the sequestration later with mr. brown. the markets, will they have a big selloff? >> i do not know if we are looking at a big selloff. we have faced these huge issues. will the u.s. go off the fiscal cliff? i think this is a more modest issue. we are putting a lot of fiscal drag. that is a lot of money for an economy only growing 2%. my concern is not a major selloff, but a growth disappointment in the first half. we are looking at a correction, should that happen. connell: we will have this debate and continue to have it. some people are saying that this of kuester is a really big deal. it is in a slow bleed. it is not as big of a deal. >> you cannot look at it in isolation. in total, again, it is not a game changer, but it will be a drag for the first part of the year. conne
